Right on the water at the end of Harris St. in Pyrmont Point, Sugaroom has proven itself to be a reliable eating place with consistently good food, and reasonable prices. I haven’t lunched here in a while mainly because, well, the menu stays a bit the same and once you’ve eaten your way through the favourites you need a break. The menu is available online here, and in addition to the attraction of the constant favourites – like the pork belly and scallops; the duck liver parfait – there’s a decent selection to choose from with entrees at $12 ($14-15 for the specials board) and mains for $25 ($27-29 for the specials).

On this visit we had

Pan fried jewfish with soubise, prawn raviolo, & crisp parsnips
Roasted free range Glenloth chicken breast
Char grilled grain fed sirloin with fondant potato and shiraz butter

…and a side of pesto baby beans with shaved parmesan.
This is a perfect place to enjoy the late Autumn sun flitting along the waters of Sydney’s inner harbour with the dynamic backdrop of the Anzac Bridge off to the left. Despite the fact that we had enough gossip to catch up on to keep us amused, our order took quite some time to arrive (after 40 minutes we had to inquire where it actually was as other tables seemed to be getting fed) and on this occasion the fish was a little dry. The chicken was moistly tender and the beef, while succulent and cooked perfectly to my requested rare, could have done with a sharper knife, if just to flay away the crisp fatty rind rather than deal with the meat itself. M was very impressed at the availability of a lavish selection of loose leaf tea (which she reliably informs me is a rarity in restaurants these days).
